Greenville High School was recently recognized for work the students and faculty have been doing with their Character Education program.
“The presentation on Friday was from Character Plus, the Gateway Grizzlies, and GCS,” Assistant Principal Brad Turner explained. “They recognized our school as a ‘Homerun for Character School’, based on an application that some teachers from our Character Education Committee submitted about some of the activities that we’ve been doing over the last year, year and a half. So, they were here and presented us with a banner and presented students and faculty with a ticket to a Grizzlies game.
“It was a neat experience for the faculty and staff to get some recognition from outside of our school and community for the things that we’re doing.”
Turner said the school was selected based on Character Education activities listed on their application. Those activities included Comet Give Back Day, their sock, hat and mitten drive for Bond County Foster Hope and the school’s BLOCC program—made up of students promoting good character and anti-bullying throughout the community.
